Anyone tested this yet...Does the 200% xp increase stack with Pet Treat or LesserPet Treat ?
Yes! They all stack.
If you're looking to do pet circuits to train up new pets, Frostfire Ridge is the place to go. All you need is a Jade Crane Chick at level 25. It can practically solo a wild 3 pet team. I usually run 2 leveling pets in a single team with this little one. With the Pet Treat and the lesser pet treat stacking with this buff, it's pretty insane xp for battle pets.
as somebody who has never done the pet battle pvp portion, what is a fairly good team combination to queue up with?
What works and what was nerfed with pet battles? Frequently I google up some suggestion for amazing experience only to get 61 XP because it was nerfed.So any help on not only what works but what no longer works - if I know X was nerfed in 6.1, then I know if I read about it to not be excited.TIA!
Friendly advice;Unless you are someone who spent dozens of hours collecting and leveling the best pets before, then DO NOT bother with the PvP event quest.Even with a decent team of 3 rares, (which had no problem defeating even Pandarian NPC tamers), I stand no chance against the pets of some pro-players. With a 1/10 win-lose ratio after 30 fights, it got really frustrating and I've had enough of this matching system.With the stacking XP bonuses, you can level 2 pets at the same time againts Ashlei, much faster than grinding for that 1 epic battle stone.
If you are just starting out and want a recommendation on what pet to lvl to 25 with your Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, if I had it to do again I would have used mine on Lil' Bling.
Sample leveling progression during this event, starting with a level 5 pet. Fights outside Horde garrison entrance. Used Safari Hat, Pet Treat, and Lesser Pet Treat.5 (starting level), 10, 14, 16, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, no level up (happens occasionally), 25
Quick fact: it takes only 2 battles against daily Draenor Master Tamers to power level a pet from 1 to 25 (if you have a strategy for carrying). You need only the event buff and safari hat.
yeah the pvp's a completely different animal than normal pve in the case of the pets, just be prepared for some pretty brutal losses.
If you're just starting out, welcome to the addiction. Go to northern Feralas and farm yourself an emerald whelpling. It's a great, solid battler that will help you greatly along the way, and it's one I still use regularly. I didn't have to farm for long back when I originally got mine, but RNG is RNG. Try the auction house too.
For the one's who want to boost their low levels and have some level 25 flying pets head for Mistfall village in Vale of eternal blossom and go behind the inn and battle some aquatic pets :)Have fun!
Another good pvp pet combo is Graves and fossilized hatchling, massive aoe damage, leaving their main pet dead and their other two mostly dead (usually two pets are dead) leaving one or two hits to finish off their team. I usually add pandaren mechanical dragonling, for the decoy to block attacks, and another good aoe attack. Main reason I'm using frostfire to level pets this weekend is to finish the pet battling monument achievement for my garrison. Less than 800 battles left....at least it is faster than the 1k pvp battles for the trainer title. Doubt I'll finish this weekend but, what the hay, just get closer.
I used Pandaren Mechanical Dragon, Chrominius and Sprite Darter. Took me 7 battles to finish the quest.
I was disappointed learning that the event quest could only be completed on one character. Considering all of the previous event quests could be done on every character :'(
It looks like you can't trade wins with a friend to complete the event quest which kinda sucks.
I got my 5 win in 5 fights with this combo:Graves 2,1,2Lil'Ragnaros 2,x,xMechanical Pandaren Dragonling x,2,2With Graves you do Bonestorm, Consume, Grave Destruction, Consume, Bonestorm, and if you're lucky you might be able to do another Bonestorm before you die,After that you bring Lil' Ragnaros and only cast Magma Wave till he die,Then Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling with Thunderbolt, then Decoy and whatever you have left (only had to use him for one of the 5 fight)
